Ref was right there and nothing was said, even though it was really clear the lineman actually knew who had the ball.
So I still say, hit the QB hard every time on an option, and this fad will die quickly.
I saw that too. I laughed. Kap went back hard. I don't remember if he went down or not. Most of his runs seem to be designed runs or pass breakdowns. I don't see him run the option as much as advertised.
